Prosecuting Attorney Fred Westhoff said Tuesday he has received a reply from the Attorney General's Office on whether or not to appeal a decision that may grant convicted armed robber James Bockos another trial. Westhoff said Jack Morris, of the criminal appellate division of the Missouri Attorney General's office, said it was unlikely an appeal by the state would overturn a ruling issued last week by special Judge Ronald M. Belt, that said, in effect, Bockes constitutional rights were violated regarding hig trial because of a descrepancy of whether or not Vicki Phelps, who was also convicted in the robbery, would testify at Bockes hearing. Both were found guilty of armed robbery of the Grand Leader Pharmacy in Canton December 31, 1982. Both were tried separately at different locations and separate time periods, but were both represented by court-appointed attorney Jules De- Coster. Judge Belt said in his ruling, when the two cases were severed, the common attorney was a violation of rights. Westhoff said it is probable there will be a new trial, as Belt's ruling sets aside the conviction of Bockes, but he (Westhoff) has no information when a new trial would be held. Westhoff said at this time, there is no effect on the Phelps case and there would be no known change in her conviction of the crime.

Route B was blocked for several hours for removal of the wreckage. The Canton Planning and Zoning Commission formed a committee Monday night to define multiple-family dwellings, as it relates to college - fraternities and sororities. The need for definition has come to light with some conflicts of the city zoning code being interpreted in several ways. At the meeting, several members of college fraternity Mu Theta Nu, as well as several Culver-Stockton College officials and area residents were present to express opinions of the fraternity purchasing a house off campus. The commission discussed, but took no action on the off-street parking requirements accompanying multi. family requiremems. In other business, the commission agreed to recommend to the Canton Board of Aldermn to allow Joyce Haugg a special use permit for a beauty shop. Ms. liaugg said she was not notified of a previous meeting where the motion was forbidden. The board also suggested Johnny Shepherd contact the Canton building inspector about protocol for tearing down a structure to replace it with a trailer with foundation. The board will meet tonight (Thursday) at 7 p.m. to review the definition of multi-family dwellings before referring to the Canton Board of Aldermen. Mo. Press hears pilot of TWA hijacked plane Newspapers and merchants can do  better with cusmers. This was a general theme brought out by several of the seminars of the 11901 annual Missouri Press Conven- tion held this weekend in Kansas City. Special luncheon speakers included Calvin Trillin, a humorist columnist from the New Yorker Magazine, and John Testrake, Captain of the ill-fated TWA flight seized by terrorists. Testrake said his only qualms about the press were the badgering his wife received during the early hours of the drama while he was still captive, but felt overall the press did its job in telling a story that had to be told. Testrake said he "is not soft on terrorism," but thinks the terrorists bad a story to tell. Testrake said an education and understanding of problems with international groups could heal wounds. Testrake said he "can't wait to get back there" to fly in the area and has no fears of returning. He is now piloting other planes that don't fly to the mideast. Attending the convention from Canton was Dan Steinbeck, auistant editor of the Press-News Journal.

Gary Dunn elected airport chairman Election of officers and updating on applicable legislation were topics at the first Lewis County Airport Authority meeting Wednesday, Oct. 30. The meeting was brought to order by Canton Mayor Roy Thirtyacre, chair- man pro tern until a chairman was elected. Gary Dunn was election chairman, Maurice Tonnies vice chairman, and Ken Hansmeier was elected secretary-treasurer, all for one-year terr0s.

Thirtyacre said the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) had insisted on condemnation of land powers, which was not a part of the legislation which allow formation of an airport authority by counties, and would have to be passed this term.
